It was founded in 1303 by Pope Boniface VIII, and closed in 1792 during the French Revolution. The University was re-opened as L'Université d'Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse in 1984 following the 1963 placement of an annex of Faculté des Sciences d'Aix-Marseille in Avignon.
A legate of the pope created in 1227 a theological education in Avignon. Municipal schools of grammar are attested in 1243. An embryo of medical education exists in 12973.
A school of civil law was created in Avignon, probably in 1263. Charles II, king of Naples and count of Provence, placed his students under his protection and decides, in 1298, that the grades will be conferred by his chancellor. But it does not seem that docendi4 ubic juice is attached to these degrees.
A university was created before 1302, when privileges were granted by Charles II, followed by other privileges granted on May 5, 1303.
